Active Ftp Client on LAN



  • I have an ftp client that is on my lan. I have to connect to a remote ftp-server that only will accept active ftp transfer. I was wondering if there was a way I could setup PFSense to operate a transparent Active FTP proxy?

    Thanks



  • Disable ftp-proxy (helper) everywhere and try one-to-one NAT and do not forget to open ports from WAN to LAN.
    Check jimp's advise first.

    The FTP helper is an FTP proxy. If you have the FTP helper enabled on LAN, it should work.

    You can do a packet capture on WAN and LAN to see if the port is being translated correctly, and check the output pf ps from the console to see if pftpx is running.
